About Me


I’m so happy that you stopped by to peek into my classroom! A little about me: I am in my 10th year of teaching. I have taught kinder – 8th, thanks to a few combo classes! I’ve district hopped three times, and that has given me a lot of insight into the needs of different communities and the teachers who work there. I’m currently in the classroom and proudly run the Tpt store, Peas in a Pod!

Being super dorky has really helped me as a teacher! I’ll sing, dance, or do both to refocus my group. They roll with laughter (at me or with me ~ it really doesn’t matter). Ultimately they are drawn in by my antics. They have no idea they were just fooled into focusing! (Let’s keep that our little secret. 😉 I also “kill ’em with kindness”. I’ve found that showering them with love is the best bet to get them to WANT to work hard.

My education includes: Masters of Education in Cross Cultural Education; BS Liberal Studies, CSU Northridge; Multiple Subject Clear Credential; Preschool Teaching Certificate
